Our shop currently uses Intella Pro + Review, but are looking to move to Intella Connect in order to have connectivity from remote office or when on the go (or working from home as many are doing currently). I know that two options are host it yourself or host it in the cloud (Azure, AWS). Personally I'd prefer to host in the cloud rather than have to worry about maintaining a system. I'm already busy and adding infrastructure support (security, backups, availability, patch management) would be quite taxing. By hosting in the cloud, some of that would be handled by the cloud provider. And I see that we could use a network dongle that would have to be hosted locally and available to Connect in the cloud, which is fine. Does anyone have experience hosting it in the cloud? If yes, what provider do you recommend? What setup (# of servers, RAM, cores, storage setup) do you recommend? As for hosting in-house, what hardware would you need to do that (if that's the route I'm required to go)? Do you need a few servers with a hardware RAID stored in a server rack in a proper server room (with adequate cooling)? Or are most hosting it on a powerful PC sitting in your office?
We have recently considered a new deployment scenario for CONNECT. It turned out not to be viable as it would require purchase of many more Microsoft server CALs and other Microsoft licenses at significant cost. Hence I wanted to raise the question what it would take to have the CONNECT server run in Linux instead of Windows (excluding index creation)? As it is a Java application it would seem to be portable (possibly with loss of functionality such as PST creation). Any thoughts?
